DIET AND DIABETES
- When Dr. Hampton really started looking into all of this, he found the works of Jason Fung, and others like him
- He realized the diabetes meds only treat the syptoms
- People still have heart attacks and strokes while on meds
- He wanted to treat the cause, not the symptoms
- Realized insulin resistance was the problem
- Took YouTube, not med school, to learn this
- Dr. Hampton had some diabetes patients that tried intermittent fasting with incredible results
- IF saves money and time
- Wrote a fantastic book – Fix Your Diet, Fix Your Diabetes
- IF allows your body to heal more
- You need to rest to heal
- Even if you’re lean, your body has enough fat (especially when the meals you do eat are fatty) to make energy
- Went from 5% to 40-50% engagement once he pressed a big meat diet!
- Previously recommended vegetarian diet
- Show people how to eat, keep it simple
- How you eat, and your health depends on your environment
- For example, in stressful environments, your hormones will be messed up and easier to eat crap
- Socio-economic status has a large effect
- Poorer communities tend to eat worse
- Some of it is culture!
- Ex: not eating chili with corn bread is blasphemous in some communities
- Have to thing of it in terms of choices: ex: if I don’t eat the pasta, I can keep my eyesight
- Also, don’t put your life in the hands of others
- Use your choices to educate others in your environment
